About the Author

For fifty years, David Lee has researched leaves, first in the Asian tropics and later at Florida International University, where he continues his studies as emeritus professor in Department of Biological Sciences. He is the author of many articles and several books, including Nature's Palette, also published by the University of Chicago Press.


"David Lee's Nature's Fabric: Leaves in Science and Culture is a wonderful book. If you don't know leaves at all, you're in for a treat! If you do think you know leaves, you're in for a treat - and an eye-opener - as Lee goes well beyond the obvious leaf facts of the biology lesson. And it's that going-beyond-the-obvious-botanical-nature-of-leaves that I really like about this book. David Lee has the knack of explaining botanical phenomenon to those who aren't necessarily that familiar with them, and making them comprehensible. As an interpreter of botanical phenomena for the non-specialist, Lee can be considered the People's Botanist."-- "Botany One"
"Leaves come to life in this work by an experienced naturalist and scientist. Lee has a wonderful empathy with leaves, and he weaves together the relevant science, history, and culture in a truly readable and informative presentation. After reading Nature's Fabric, you will be looking at leaves from a different perspective."--Sir Ghillean Prance, FRS, VMH, former director, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
